This week’s National Day of Reflection was a good excuse for all the residents and staff at Alexandra Court Care Centre to pause for a minute and think about the last year, the people they’ve lost and the people they miss.

So, along with millions of other people, they observed a minute’s silence at midday on Tuesday.

The silence gave everyone time to think about the last challenging twelve months and the difficulty of lockdown and the virus itself.

The staff talked about the residents lost to COVID and found it sad; being unable to support families as they would usually, and how their thoughts are with the loved ones of residents.

They talked about residents who have been unable to see family and friends and how this has meant becoming part of a support network for the residents and each other.

The residents and staff then reflected on positive events; the return of visitors, the vaccine roll-out and, of course, holding hands; And the united residents and staff at the #Hull care home will continue to put smiles on each other’s faces.

They will turn that frown, upside down
